The Park Forest Art Fair was simply amazing. I have never experienced an art fair such as this before. The attention and support given to the artists made one feel like royalty. I enjoyed the breakfast and was more than grateful for the spread that was laid before us for dinner. The award ceremony left me speechless. I have never experienced that level of appreciation for vendors at an Art Fair before. Wow!!! Is all I can say. I enjoy meeting the other artists. Their work floored me. The kind spirit of the artists and the staff was felt throughout the weekend. I am more than satisfied with my sales. – Tara McGee
